Giving Tuesday, locally

Giving Tuesday, a tradition that started back in 2012 at the 92nd Street Y in New York City, is a response to the increased commercialization of the holiday season. As you make plans to give presents to family and friends, consider including these local charities in your gift-giving. Did I miss a local charity? Send me an email at info@thehillishome.com.
